Re: Two apparent bugs in latest version

I have been using SQLInform for several years now (site license at work) and love it.

With the latest version (Engine Release 5.0.5, GUI 5.0.4) there are a couple of anomalies.

1) Save formatted SQL to file.
The SQL being saved is the unformatted SQL.

2) Extra Linefeed in Formatted SQL

When formatting SQL, an extra linefeed is being inserted.
This problem did not occur with the older 4.x version I was using.
I cannot find any option that may be controlling this.

Example SQL:

select username, count(*) sessions
from v$session
where username is not null
group by username
order by sessions desc, username

Sample of hex output of formatted SQL:

75 73 65 72 6E 61 6D 65 0A 0A 20 2C username.. ,

Two LF now instead of one.

Hi Jared,
please try the new version 5.0.14
Release 5.0.14

Thank you for being so responsive!

1) saving formatted SQL to text files works as expected, and the formatting is correct.

2) copying formatted SQL to clipboard, I am still seeing incorrect spacing.

Now though it is not double linefeed, but double CR.

For this first line:

Hi Jared,
did you copy the SQL
* using the "Copy to Clipboard" button
* using ctrl+c
* using right mouse-click + context menu ?

Hi Guido,

Sorry for taking so long to reply.

I tried all, and here are the results:

* "Copy to Clipboard" button

Worked as expected - no extra lines

* ctrl+c

Worked as expected - no extra lines

* using right mouse-click + context menu ?

Extra lines appear when pasted into another file
